ACCESS College Commitment Day
What started as a national movement in 2016, National College Signing Day—in which ACCESS was one of 1,000 participating organizations across the country—is now a highly anticipated local event as ACCESS gears up to host its fourth annual ACCESS College Commitment Day in 2019. This is a celebratory event to commemorate a student’s college acceptance and the filing of their FAFSA form to acquire funding for their education.
Nearly 2,200 seniors from the 30 local public high schools served by ACCESS College Foundation will attend this event, as well as parents, high school faculty, college faculty, and community leaders. This event will be held on April 30, 2019 at Old Dominion University’s Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Virginia. The master of ceremonies is local radio personality, Shaggy from Z104’s Z Morning Zoo, who helps make this high-energy, school-spirited celebration for high school seniors an unforgettable tribute to their educational achievements.
The local news and talk show airings made it possible for the entire community to join in the celebration and be inspired by ACCESS student leaders as they declared their commitment to higher education.
